Raz by Jim Cartwright at the Trafalgar Studios 2
It has been announced that a new play by Oliver Award-winner Jim Cartwright Raz will run at the Trafalgar Studios 2 in central London from 22 March to 16 April 2016, with an official opening on 24 March 2016.
This new play is described as a commentary on the current culture of booze, drugs and disposable relationships within the context of the age of the zero-hours contract highlighting the low-paid lives and even lower aspirations of the generation of austerity. It originally premiered at the Edinburgh Festival in 2015.
"It's Friday night and Shane's going to hit the town hard. On Monday it's back to the grind and he starts all over again. This vivid portrait of the weekend millionaires who gym and tan while Mum does the laundry is the very real story of a lost generation of young adults living in Britain today."
Directed by Anthony Banks the production stars James Cartwright, son of playwright Jim Cartwright. It will also feature music and sound design by Ben and Max Ringham.
Jim Cartwright's credits include his 1986 multi award-winning debut 'Road' as well as 'The Rise and Fall of Little Voice' (1992) which premiered at the National Theatre and won three Olivier Awards including Best Comedy.
